foot pain/toe numbness


I am a runner, and recently have noticed that my toes on my left foot go numb. Its the ring toe, and pinky one.

My mom had morton’s neruomas, I am wondering if I inharited them, but not sure, as the pain/ numbness occur when riding stationary bike, or using ellipitcal.

I also have pain in those toes.

What could it be?

    Thank you for your question.

    Neuromas in the foot are actually more common than people suspect; they are just not symptomatic in all patients. A Morton’s neuroma is found in between the 4th and 5th toes and often presents with pain or numbness in the 4th and 5th toes.

    The neuroma can also give the sensation of stepping on a people or fold in the sock. There are various treatments for neuromas including injections, orthotics, shoe modification and surgical excision. If your pain persists I would see a Podiatrist who can better evaluate you and recommend the appropriate treatment.

    Good luck!
